Nice to get some background on Murrdock, although I was hoping for more twist. It reminded me of Batman Arkham Origin

This has been one of the most satisfying character runs in a long time. You can tell from this issue that Jason Aaron has been planning this for a while and the payoff thus far has been emotional. Dauterman is having a blast drawing this because the book looks incredibly detailed and colorful. "The Death of the Mighty Thor" has been one of the best Thor stories, on par with "The God Butcher".

Another well paced and well balanced issue. Supporting characters got developed, plenty of action, and most importantly the plot actually moved along (Bendis can go several issues sometimes with plot in neutral).

Incredible Hulk continues to bore me. For what should be a big story, this feels like a last minute haphazard version. This is what Civil War 2 felt like compared to Civil War. The cliffhanger gave me hope, but that'll probably be dashed on the rocks in the next issue. We'll see.
